This seems to be the week for studios and mini-majors to dump their languishing indie dramas onto the market, and the unsuspecting box office audience is the beneficiary. But first, the movies that will probably win the weekend box office.

The Invisible - It's teen-y. It's scary. It’s got a cute boy in the lead. I smell box office winner. Justin Chatwin, who looks like he could be the cut cutest of the Culkin kids, stars as a Nick, a promising high school student who is attacked and left for dead. But if he can find a way to solve his impending murder, he may be able to save himself before he dies.
